Volume 470: debated on Thursday 24 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many spouses from Pakistan left the marital home before being granted indefinite leave to remain and were allowed to stay in the UK as a result of an administrative decision by her Department in each year since 2000. (179774)

The requested information is not readily available and could be obtained only by examining individual case files at a disproportionate cost.

The number of Pakistani spouses who left the marital home and were subsequently recorded as being granted indefinite leave to remain on the basis of domestic violence since 2003 is shown in the table.

This information has not been quality assured and is not a national statistic. It should be treated as provisional management information and may be subject to change. Data have been rounded to the nearest five.
